Florida's Plan to Address the Housing Needs of Domestic Violence Survivors

Abstract

In 2007, the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence formed a planning group to take a statewide look at what could be done to address the housing needs of DV survivors. The DV and Housing Planning Group examined the availability of affordable housing generally, and the unique barriers survivors face to finding housing. The plan includes strategies for creating more affordable housing, helping survivors work toward economic self-sufficiency, developing permanent housing tailored toward the needs of survivors, advocating for improving federal housing policy, and enhancing existing services with a stronger focus on housing.
